I installed my draw-tite hitch the way you're supposed to install it, but there was about 5 inches between the bottom of the bumper and the top of the receiver hole. It hung down way to much for my liking so I figured I'd have to improvise, thats why I mounted it the way I did. I also mounted my hidden hitch front hitch on the top of the frame rails so I wouldn't have to cut a hole in my valance.

The hidden hitch is designed almost exactly the same as the drawtite hitch so its gonna hang down quite a bit. Some people don't mind it hanging down but I personally think it looks "unfinished".

I would have tried out that Summit hitch if I new they made that when I was in the market for a hitch. From the design of it, it looks like it would fit perfect with a body lift.

I'm looking for a hitch that will look flush(no gap) with my 3" body lift. Any ideas?
